Luxury label Trussardi has appointed Gaia Trussardi as creative director of the entire brand.
Trussardi, who was already creative director for the Tru Trussardi and Trussardi Jeans collections, and serves on the board, will also now be in charge of the Trussardi main collection
This comes after designer Umit Benan Sahin left the brand as creative director after his two year contract expired. The women’s autumn 13 collection was the last line from Sahin who said it has been a “great experience and honour” to work for the Italian fashion house.
Under new creative directorship the group plans to strengthen the brand image by placing all the collections under one vision, which is categorized primarily by leather.
